Default Tighter wheel hubs for Losi 8ight t 2.0

I hear the xray hubs are a tighter fit than the losi's and I have some on order. However they won't be here until next week and i need them for this weekend. My LHS has the losi ones for like 30 bucks for 4 of them. Are there any other cheaper brands work on the losi that are just as good or better?

Thats a crazy price. I've bought a ton of them on ebay for real cheap.

I agree. Thats why i'm trying to find some others that will work for cheap. The LHS had some kyosho ones for like 13 bucks for 4. Anyone know if those fit. They were 17mm.

I have been using the x-ray hubs for several months and they are still nice and tight. If you want to decrease the slop go with the x ray 17mm hubs, and they come in a variety of sizes. 0, +1, +2mm. They work well for me

I've been using the Xray hubs also. They are really nice and stay much tighter than the losi ones.

If you are able to get the 2.o EU ones, they seems to hold up better.

I'm just gonna run my old ones for this weekend. The xrays will be here saturday or monday. I don't want to buy the losi's for 30 bucks. I'll just deal with my sloppy ones for this weekend. Sometimes i think i'm over paranoid on keeping the truck maintained.

il tell you the truth for a club racer, like me i dont notice the play while i am driving really.

yea and losi for some of there things, they do overcharge and there are aftermarket parts out there that are much better.

I ran those on my 1.0 and what a waste of $$. The losi ones are half the price and work just as well.
